Jimmy Carter Praises Edward Snowden, Slams NSA FascismSubmitted by the_chiefe71 on Thu, 07/18/2013 - 22:50
I saw the couple of other Jimmy Carter new threads opened today, but they focus only on the "no longer functional democracy" / "representative republic" stuff.
A HUGE significance of former US President coming out in support of Snowden & slamming NSA is totally missed by those threads. So opening yet another Jimmy Carter thread for today, despite the redundancy.
Former President Jimmy Carter announced support for NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden this week, saying that his uncovering of the agency's massive surveillance programs had proven "beneficial."
Carter also criticized the NSA's domestic spying as damaging to the core of the nation's principles.
